Soda pop So"da pop, n. a popular non-alcoholic beverage, sweetened by various means, containing flavoring and supersaturated with carbon dioxide, so as to be effervescent when the container is opened; -- in different localities it is variously called also {soda}, {pop}, {mineral water}, and {minerals}. It has many variants. The sweetening agent may be natural, such as cane sugar or corn syrup, or artificial, such as saccharin or aspartame. The flavoring varies widely, popular variants being fruit juices, fruit sirups, cream, or cola flavoring; the soda pop is usually served chilled.

Note: Several large corporations started primarily as bottlers of soda pop, such as {Coca-Cola}, {Pepsi-Cola}, and {Dr. Pepper}. [PJC]
